Cork native John Barry has partnered over 200 point-to-point winners on the Irish pointing circuit.

This coming a decade after his first winner between the flags in November 2007 at Dromahane aboard the Michael Hourigan-trained Some Craic. In January 2024, he rode his 200th point winner aboard Locken Lady at Tinahely. Under rules, John has recorded over 30 winners, the first of which came at Sligo in May 2010.
